Thomas Lyndon, an unknown artist, wakes to his usual ritualistic routine on the morning of his first one man show, unaware that his life is about to change forever. He is concerned when Katherine, his girlfriend, doesn’t turn up to the show’s opening party as they had both been looking forward to it for some time.
Distracted by her sudden disappearance, his whole world is turned upside down as he is forced to follow Katherine’s trail of breadcrumbs, clues to her disappearance he has to unravel.
Set against a palette of relentless grey winter, eventually the breadcrumbs lead him to the Gingerbread House, the source of her childhood nightmares and the reason for her disappearance. But even Thomas’s creative mind could not have imagined the world of pain he is about to uncover.
In the heart of a family void of humanity, how do you solve the secrets of childhood nightmares when all your dreams are of monsters and dragons? And where do you hide when those dreams become reality?
